Why not just say that 1981 was a terrific year? i don't think I've heard a bad show from '81 and the audience recordings are very good as well. Jerry was at his best from Aug 1980 through Oct 1982. The persian somehow fueled his guitar playing but didn't make him sloppy until '83. His voice was still very good as he had a more mature sound than the early 70's. The October European tour has some of the best shows I've heard as do the May shows.

I absolutely agree, I am on record here as saying that my favorite era from the shows I witnessed (my first show was Englishtown '77 and my last was in Vegas '95) is 81-mid 83. In 1981 saw some of the tightest jamming I ever saw.

'81 is a grand year indeed...and since i'm not familiar w/this particular show, i can't wait to hear it!
